Review:

"Jones brings order to the vast, unorganized mass of art information on the World Wide Web. . . . The organization and level of detail set a standard for similar works in other disciplines." - Choice

"Quite detailed, substantive, and very well organized, this book fills a gap in the literature. . . . The result is highly successful in bringing attention to peripheral yet still very relevant art resources such as cultural and civic group sites, guides to foundations and granting institutions, and information on auction sales and appraisals. . . . An essential guide for all art history researchers, this also would be suitable for all public, special and academic libraries with art history collections." - Library Journal

"This book is exactly what it claims, a complete 'how to' guide--and is absolutely packed with information. There is something for every level of art and technological ability, interest, and objective." - The Australian Library Journal

"[S]uperb guide. . . . [I]t informs the process of art-related research well beyond the scope of simply connecting to Internet sites. . . . [H]ighly recommended. . . . [T]his well-written and structured resource will serve as an excellent guide to art-related research on the Internet." - Internet Reference Services Quarterly

"[H]ighly recommended for all types of art libraries as ready-reference. Students and novices to the Internet and digital technologies will find this book invaluable, and educators will want to incorporate it into their bibliographic instruction programs." - Visual Resources

"This is a rich and valuable book for seriou art researchers. . . . [T]he techniques she advances for integrating the Internet with traditional sources can be applied to other subjects: consequently I recommend the book to all scholars." - CIDER

"Because government comprehensive sites for art and art history similar to those for government have not yet come into being (although Art History Resources on the Web does a good job for part of the field), a source such as Jones' Art Information and the Internet is needed." - VRA Bulletin

"This pioneering book is essential to finding and using art information resources on the Internet. . . . The book skillfully brings together an impressive amount of information and helps the reader make sense of it through the development of effective information-seeking and analysis skills. . . . [T]he reader will be very impressed with the extensive amount of information, so clearly presented, well-written and edited. . . . [I]t is highly recommended to librarians, students, educators, and other art professionals. All types of art libraries - academic, musuem, art and design school, and public - will want at least one copy of this important contribution to the literature of art." - Art Documentation

"[F]or a definitive look at this subject, pick up a copy a Art Information and the Internet. by Lois Swan Jones. Published by Oryx Press, this time offers a cornucopia of art websites as well as advice on finding specific artists and genres. My favorite part, and the most dog-eared section of the book is the Online Self-Guided Tours chapter." - Armarillo Globe Newspaper

"The internet holds innumerable answers to art questions, provided you can unlock its secrets, and Lois Swan Jones does as much as anyone to provide a key. . . . Art Information and the Internet: How to Find it, How to Use It by Lois Swan Jones is a guide to the ferreting out of art information on the Internet, but it takes care also to include supplementary information resources as well. On both counts it cannot miss being helpful." - The Art Book
